It has been rumored for quite some time that [Mad Max: Fury Road](tag:41445) director George Miller was in talks with Warner Bros about possibly directing a future DC film and it seems that there may be truth to that rumor. Man of Steel 2, which was confirmed to not be on permanent hold, is the film that DC is interested in Miller directing but it may not be that simple.
George Miller can't make up his mind?
According to the reports, George Miller all but has the job but he can't seem to make up his mind as to what he wants to do. The door is wide open for him and Warner Bros definitely has the interest. After directing one of the best films of the year in Mad Max: Fury Road, George Miller is a hot commodity for movie studios everywhere so the Man of Steel 2 directors seat is his for the taking. If Miller were to come to DC and direct the Man of Steel sequel, he would excel and possibly take the Man of Steel franchise to the next level. If he were to direct the film, he may direct a film with one of Superman's most anticipated villains... BRAINIAC!
Will Brainiac be in Man of Steel 2?
A while back, Zack Snyder revealed that Superman would be taking on an extraterrestrial android in Man of Steel 2. The first name that comes to mind has to be Brainiac, who is a very common adversary of Superman in both the comics and animated films/series. While this is merely speculation at this point, if Zack Snyder's comments had any merit, then Braniac is a top contender for Man of Steel 2. The script is definitely subject to change once they write it up but it would be "Brain"-tastic to see Brainiac in MoS 2!
